The Battle of the Bums: Museums around the world contest on who's got best bums - We The World Magazine

We remind you, last time you read one such story was back in March when museums around the world were entwined in a battle of showing off who’s got the scariest collection in their archives.

Kickstarted by the Yorkshire Museum, that time it challenged other museums in the world to flaunt their #CreepiestObjects and they started the challenge with a horrible picture of a 3rd/4th Century wig of a Roman lady that still has the jet pins intact.

Several other museums joined the game, showing the terrifying things they have. You can read the full post here to get an idea about what those museums had. The pandemic was just starting to begin and people gave a lot of attention to the hilarious but creepy challenge online,

The same museum has called off another similar battle, this time it is challenging to show off who’s got the best bums of all. You’ve read that correct, best bums.

As a part of their #CURATORBATTLE, the museum tweeted “Today’s theme is #BestMuseumBum!” and launching the game, they shared a “cracking Roman marble statuette depicts an athlete at the peak of fitness!”

Soon a lot of art enthusiasts and museums started sharing what they think has the best bums of all. Take a look below.

One twitter user shared this mysterious statue where the torso is missing, and the maker must have wanted the viewers to notice nothing but the but. Take a look below.

In the below tweet by The Netherlands’ Freedom Museum, they shared a satirical ‘anti-Hitler Cushion’ from the US, attached to a bent-over statue of Adolf Hitler.

Some of the entries were out of museums. Like the below sculpture from David at Hyde Park Corner. “His back view distracts drivers negotiating a busy traffic light junction and a fast sweeping curve at the bottom of Park Lane,” it writes, adding that the bum is called “the ass of death.”
